Editorial Reviews

K-Gr 2-Take a grandmotherly woman, make her the mother of a giant who amuses himself by scaring animals in the forest, then make her the hero of the story after putting her son in his place, and you are sure to get some laughs. In the end it is this elderly woman who gets crowned "the mightiest" by the "tough" animals, but she wisely gives back her title knowing that she does not need a crown to prove anything. The notion that brains are mightier than brawn and that the most unexpected people are sometimes the strongest of the bunch is, of course, a great lesson to teach children. Though there is not much variety in the illustrations of the characters and their expressions, they still manage to be amusing and to add depth to the story. A good addition to a library or home collection.Marietta Barral Zacker, Atlanta Book Consulting, GA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
